I believe the disconnect is at least in part because for all the success under Gundy, the Cowboys have never reached a BCS championship game, like Oregon did, or a College Football Playoff, like Michigan State or even Cincinnati…

Two Quotes

• Kids these days are about to get Cowboy and Cowgirl trading cards – amazing.

• Pretty solid explanation – SportingNews has the Pokes at No. 12 (one spot behind the Sooners) in their post-spring top-25:

The Cowboys still have quarterback Spencer Sanders, and he totaled 26 TDs last season. Brennan Presley is a go-to receiver, and the offense almost always finds a way with longtime coach Mike Gundy. The defense should still be aggressive with Mason, too. The Cowboys have road games at Baylor, Oklahoma and Kansas State. 

One Question

• How much fun would it have been to have Markelle Martin on a Jim Knowles’ defense? Answer: a lot of fun.
